Blue Crab

We're considering a 2014 trip to Placencia and the Blue Crap was on a top ten list to stay due to its location & price. What I'm wondering is:

1. Has anyone (within the last year) stayed there? What were you're thoughts?

2. How did you get from BZE to Placencia? I know theres the rent a car, take the shuttle or fly in option but what did you take & your thoughts?

3. Also any useful info about Placencia would be awesome! My BF & I will be traveling with 2 other couples, age range of late 20's-late 30's, and some want to do activities others just beach it. All useful info welcomed!!!

I do hope the spelling is correct in the subject line and not the 1st line of your post; I don't think I'd feel comfortable making reservations at a place called the Blue Crap no matter how great the reviews. ;-)

We stayed about a week in Placencia a year ago in an awesome little apartment in town. I've pasted some links below in case they might be of use.

We loved the Monkey River guide we had; here's his contact information:

My husband had a great day of fishing with Wayne Castellanos (dial 011 501 first if calling from the US):

I dived a few tanks with Seahorse; there was a boatload of snorkelers heading out to Laughing Bird Caye at the same time:

We took a bus up from Punta Gorda to Independence and crossed the lagoon to Placencia on the Hokey Pokey boat. We taxied to the airport and flew north from there.
